Why you shouldn't miss this webinar
For many business users, the search for useful, valuable information is time-consuming and inefficient. Often, the process requires significant efforts from IT to satisfy ad hoc requests for data and reports. In addition, business users are all too often dependent on spreadsheets with their inherent limitations or niche solutions that aren't integrated with other applications or processes.
This session will describe how the power of business visualization can transform how you see, discover and share insights hidden in your data. Now you can experience the aha! moments that you just don't achieve with static graphs, spreadsheets or reports. Learn how to bring movement, graphics and data together and explore your data in a dynamic and flexible way – right from your desktop!
Attend this Webinar and learn how to:
- Quickly surface data trends, patterns and anomalies.

- Enrich sharing of insights with movement, dimension, texture and colors that make your data stories come alive.
- Enable the organization to understand analysis through visual interactivity and prompting.
